When we visited a Medieval Festival was being staged. The square is surrounded by eating establishments but the centre of the square was filled with market stalls and entertainment. A big stage showcased local music and dancing. Our visit was in the daytime but I guess that in the evening the musical offerings would be rather more modern and upbeat.... More

I love the city center of Sibiu. The sidewalk is very nice, you can find here many terraces with free wi-fi, restaurants and ice-cream sellers. It has a fabulous architecture and the Evangelist church behind is a must to visit. This weeked was tje Pottery fair, there were many tourists and sellers with beautiful pieces of art. Would come back... More

Walked around by a beautiful sunny day with the wife. Ice cream parlors every 10m. Nice stores for shopping (incl. a Massimo Dutti and a Zara).

I like everything, it reminded me of Paris. There are lots of little streets in which you can see little corridors with nice views. There is nothing I disliked.

With stunning architecture and people watching in the midst of medieval buildings, the Piata Mare is a great place to sip wine and watch. Most of the tourists when we were there were Romanian with a smattering from other parts of Europe. People speak enough English to make it painless although Romanian as a Romance language is not too difficult... More

Sibiu is just like Brasov has a big central square. Everyting is at walking distance. There are many restaurants at the square though prices are not that cheap.
